  1. OneDrive Sync Client for Document Libraries - Allow editing when Checkout is Required

    When syncing Document Libraries that have "checkout required" with the OneDrive.exe client, it doesn't allow you to edit the documents in Windows Explorer, according to the below link it's on the product groups backlog. This option was available when using the Groove.exe. We would like our users to just use the OneDrive Sync client and not have to worry about having 2 sync clients.

  2. I hope you have suggestions. Never seen anything like this Google fiasco

    Yes that would be great. I've noticed some stuff it's doing on the phone itself that's contributing.also

  3. Only upload new items in a folder already uploaded

    Can't drag a whole folder and have it upload any new content not already in the folder. It just cancels the whole upload, pretty pointless, i bet msdos could have handled that.

  4. Video shows black screen on Android OneDrive app

    When I play videos one the Android OneDrive app it just shows a black screen. The sound works fine. Everything is up to date and the video is a mp4 (This problem extends to all videos in various formats).
    I'm using a OnePlus 3T (Oreo), but it seems that there are many people with different phones with this problem according to a quick search.

  5. The files don’t automatically get uploaded

    I think there should be an option to let the photos and videos be uploaded each time they are taken. Right now, I should open the OneDrive app and click on the photo to start the upload.

  6. I'm not notified about session expired unless I refresh the page

    I was trying to download a document from OneDrive, but I clicked multiple times but nothing happened. So I refreshed my page and found out my session expired. As a user, I would expect when I click download, it tells me the failure reason rather than failing silently.

  7. Ctrl+P should print the document, not the HTML page!!!

    When I have my document open in OneDrive, I would expect the shortcut Ctrl+P should print the document, just like clicking print button does, not the HTML page that opens the document! I will never want to print the HTML page.

  8. Android file picker "read only"

    When selecting a file from the file picker (screenshot attached) it will be "read only"

    This is not an issue when opening the file directly from the OneDrive Android app and this is also not an issue with other cloud storage that uses the file picker.

  9. onedrive files on demand problems

    some buggy apps cause files on demand to download all files on onedrive to the local drive and there is no way to stop it within the onedrive app. the only solution is to find the buggy app and end task it.

  13. OneDrive uploads deleted files again

    If I delete a large amount of files on PC1, sync and then turn on PC2, PC2 starts uploading those files again (there were still local copies of those files on PC2).

    Causes chaos and makes the cloud service useless.

  14. "executable" file flag?

    I have data mixed with scripts and each time I download them back, I have to adjust the executable flag (I tried it with files stemming from an NTFS and EXT4 source, respectively).
    Can you fix it?

  15. We need to be able to download files from OneDrive with their time and date modified not their date downloaded

    To be much use as a backup, it is essential that OD is able to download files from the cloud to our computers with the time and date they had when uploaded. The current system updates to the download time and date, making OD almost useless as an off-site backup solution. Please at least give us the option to do this. At the moment it is only of value as a backup for files created in the last day or two, meaning that another off-site back up is required (eg, an external hard-drive). In hope - despite OD's problems, I…

  17. Changing a user account's name doesn't update the 2 year deletion email alerts

    I had a user that got married. Her primary UPN changed because we use first initial, last name. She has had full access to OneDrive since we made the change nearly two years ago and uses it semi-frequently. Even the User Profile in SharePoint reflects the new name. I left her old user UPN as a secondary Alias in her account so that she will still receive email to her form name/email address. Everything works well. However, she just got an email to her former name/email address from Microsoft stating that her OneDrive account will be delete due to inactivity.…

  18. Don't change my album cover photo after I add new photos

    Sometimes, the cover photo I chose for my album is changed to a random one when I add new photos to the album. I think this is a bug. Please fix it. Thanks.

  19. You need to allow people I give the permission link to access that file without signing in to MSN.

    I give people a link that says "anyone with this link can view" but people are receiving the link and being told they have to sign in to MSN account. They don't have an MSN account so they cannot view the file. Again the permission says "anyone with the link can view" NOT "anyone with an MSN account and a link can view"

  20. Action multiple selected items

    When searching for files, the system allows selection of multiple items, but the top menu bar disappears, which means you can select multiple items but cannot action them.

    This is a bug that needs to be fixed.
